Indian woman sculpture is coming along nicely. For the past several days I’ve been mourning the loss of my kitty and haven’t felt much like sculpting but yesterday I felt better. I worked on her braids and tried out some feathers in the back of her hair. The feathers need to be fairly thick in order for the casting material to flow through the mold well. More work will be done on braids and feathers.

Bronze Indian Woman Sculpture
My intention is for this Indian woman to be made into a bronze sculpture. In order for her to go into bronze the Indian woman will need to have a rubber silicone mold made of her. Wax is poured into the mold and the wax copy is removed and touched up. This wax copy is dipped into liquid ceramic which hardens when it dries and is fired in a kiln. The high temperature causes all the wax to burn out leaving the empty ceramic shell. Bronze is then poured into the shell. Finally a bronze Indian woman sculpture copy/cast will have been produced.
Along the spine of her back it looks like it needs to be softened a bit. A lot of times when I take pictures I notice things that I miss when looking directly at the sculpture in person. If you look closely you’ll see some green mold growing on her sacrum, that’s the triangular fleshy area at the bottom of the spine. I may spray it with bleach water to kill the mold back somewhat.
As always, any comments are always appreciated. I’ve enjoyed sharing my works with friends and family via email and now I can do it online. I’m really loving this blog thing because it’s sort of like having a diary except this diary is one that I can share with everyone and get their feedback too. Thanks for listening and watching.
